Overview

The rich, fertile grounds of the Slieve Aughty mountains are wonderful grazing grounds for Galway’s grass-fed cows, so it is no surprise that their milk makes exceptional cheese. See this for yourself on Teresa’s family farm, where you will learn about the cheesemaking process, how the cheese is matured, and just how they get it to taste so good.
  • Tour the farm at Kylemore House; you might even get to meet their cows
  • Your host Teresa is a trained cheesemaker, who will share some trade secrets
  • Enjoy a sample of house-made Appenzeller (a nutty, Alpine-style cheese)
  • At the end of your tour relax with a glass of wine around the farmhouse fire

Three of my friends and I (all in our 30's) decided to book this trip as we love cheese and had a few extra hours before the airport, we had no idea that we were in for the most fun part of our trip. We went to the farm and Teresa could not have made us feel more welcome. We got into boots, fed the baby cows and were even lucky enough to see a calf be born! We were able to experience first hand seeing what happens after the calf is born, milking cows, drinking fresh milk, feeding babies and playing in the field with some of the older one year old cows. After the experience with the animals, we moved into the cheese area to understand how the cheese in made and then inside to eat it! It was not just a couple of pieces of cheese to try while you stand around as we expected, we sat at the beautiful table in the farmhouse, drank tea, chatted and ate a lot of cheese and other goodies. I wish there was a way to upload some pictures from our amazing day. We highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to get out of the city for a few hours, and experience real farm life in Ireland. This would also be a great trip with kids.
